In my opinion the public roads should not be used for racing at all. It doesn’t matter if it’s cycling or motor racing.
The simple fact that it’s a race makes it dangerous and the Highway Code will be disregarded for precious seconds . If it must be done on a road the organisers should be forced to close the roads properly and pay accordingly.
So road racing should be banned? I'll bet cars get banned 1st.

In sunny Teneriffe. Walking along the promenade in Playa de Las America's, spotted a young Romanian woman with her hand in my boss's rucksack. Grabbed her hands and started shouting "police". Initially she struggled and tried to get away, but as people came round us she gave up on that idea and just kept shouting "what is your problem?" In Spanish. Some Spanish women said she had tried to rob them the day before. Some of the lads from the local surfing school stayed with us until the police came (about 40 minutes later). The woman had no shame. Robbery is her profession. The police knew her and took her and my wife and I to the police station. They wanted to know what she might have potentially stolen. It seems that below a certain value in Spain it is not considered a crime. Then a senior officer came along and spotted a very feint scratch on my arm. He asked me if I would let them take me to hospital emergencies I agreed and was seen by a doctor. Really it was just playing the game. For robbery they couldn't touch this girl, but for assault .......
This woman is a shameless thief.

Dose anyone else have this problem every where you drive people stop and stare as if they have never seen a Elgrand
Yes!

I had a brand new black Range Rover slow down and pull alongside me yesterday on the M3, all the occupants were pointing and staring, they then gave me a thumbs up, before disappearing at about 120mph

Hi @Ruzz1
Sorry about the ribs, just try not to laugh.
Have you heard the one about ............?
A passer by asked a farmhand "How many sheep in that field?" After a few moments the farmhand said "463". "Gosh", said the passer by. "How did you count them so quickly?" The farmhand replied, I cheated. I counted the feet and divided by four!" 😃😃😃😃
